How sad is this?

Last Friday in crazy hot temperatures...read 108F people this is unbearable for a middle aged slightly overweight asthmatic like me! So last friday I took a loooonnngggg walk (well it certainly felt that way), I walked down the hill and headed to Salvation Army.

It was the 50% off sale.....you know the usual....tons of stuff......tons of crazies....all the stressed out,crazy,neurotic,stinky,not so clean and some really sad and desperate people crammed in an old building with NO air conditionning! WHOA NELLY that is a recipe for disaster!

Turns out I didn't find anything interesting to me so I didn't have to fight in line to go to the cash.

But I saw 2 noteworthy items....



I first saw this a couple of months ago and in fact I saw a whole box of these. Now please tell me what the heck are these doing in Montreal ? I used to have a collection of cheap souvenir water globes but most of it got smashed by my landlord's plumber who came to fix the tub.....bummer. I still have a soft spot for them. I'm a tacky girl at heart.

And this ....this is really sad, and I'm in denial at the crazy price they want for this.....


  Boohoo,boohoo,boohoo poor little Pyrex bowl! By the color I'm guessing it was a Spring Blossom Green 402. Some people call this well loved I call this being lazy! Instead of washing it by hand why not just stuffing it in the dishwasher? It's so much easier....that is CRAP!

Please if you want to enjoy your Pyrex don't put them in the dishwasher! It will damage your dishes not to mention the paint you'll wash in your waterways that are already in dire need of help!

Ok that concludes the eco/Pyrex militant part of the post!

Do you watch Top Chef Just Dessert? How crazy is Seth? He could fit right in the Salvation Army right along Penny from the Next Food Network Star! Why can't people just get along and cook peacefully?

Here at Casa de Vonlipi we are totally addicted to food competitions! Rats ! Masterchef is not on because of the President's address....

yea, well loved my patoooti. I see this kind of thing I wonder why? Anyway, my friend cleaned out her grandpa's house, he had a crate full of nudie girl glasses where they have clothes on the front, but inside the glass from behind, they were naked. She put almost all of them in the dishwasher, and of course all the pictures came off! I was freaked out, but I did get the three or four she didn't ruin!

Hmm, how on earth did the plumber smash the snowglobes!?

Well SixBalloons this is kind of a mystery...all I know is that I went to work, the plumber came and when I came back, most of the collection was on the floor....I did complain but got nowhere.

She was a meanie landlord!

Hmmm, maybe it wasn't the plumber after all, maybe it was the landlord and she conveniently blamed the plumber...

Yes, I wash all my Pyrex by hand, lovingly. And I have trained hubby too!
